Using mutiple discounts

I am already getting free dining, but I saw today that Disney is offering up to 30% off rooms the same time I am going.  Can I add that discount to my package even though I have free dining?

thanks,

Melissa

NOPE

 One or the other. 

Figure out how much you would spend on food and see if the free dining would save you more or the room discount.

No unfortunately you cannot combine discounts. It would be great if you could though. You have to pick which discount works best for you.

If you get a pin you can use that in addition to your free dining or 30% off, whichever you had. Say you got a pin code in your email for free dining you could use that in addition to your 30% off. Pins are rare though. If you request a free map, and planning DVD, plan a couple trips and leave em sitting around in your cart for a few days you MIGHT be lucky and get one.

That's not correct. 

A pin code is either for free dining or a room discount. 

You choose which offer you want to use.  You cannot do both. There is no stacking of discounts with Disney. 

Same for a bounce-back offer. 

Only one type of discount per vacation package. 

The only way you could use both is if you booked back to back vacations.

EXP:

You want to book for the week of Nov 8th-15th. 

You use free dining and book a package at a value resort and stay there from the 8th-11th. 

Then you book another package from the 11th-15th at a deluxe and use the room discount and use the money saved from the earlier booking to pay for your food. Now you you have used both discounts and got to upgrade the last part of your trip. 

Split stays are done at Disney all the time. They would transfer your luggage from the value resort to the deluxe resort.

Hmm .. In 2011 I actually recieved a pin for free dining and a discounted room. But I guess that's considered "one offer" to disney since its one pin code.

It was either or.  Not for both.
